We work actively and purposefully to reduce our climate footprint and thus contribute to sustainable development.
As a technology company, we are at the forefront of digital transformation and shape the business community and business models of the future with innovative and adaptable solutions that are energy and resource efficient.
Data generates heat. Lots of heat.
Free cooling on the farm
We have several thousand servers in production in our data center. A lot of energy is used to cool the servers, which is why we have built a free cooling system based on ground cooling. Two separate slings have been dug, each of 7.500 meters, which together provide the opportunity to continuously deliver or retrieve approx. 400kW cooling or heating power. The total length of the pipe loops is 15.000 meters.
In addition, there is a larger heating system that draws up to 150kW connected to the system. The heating system provides heat for offices, tap water, machine hall and a universal dryer for grain and bioenergy. All three loops are reversible, allowing them to provide cooling or heating as needed. In total, approx. 35.000 liters of environmentally friendly coolant (Propylene glycol) in the system.
A total of roughly estimated XNUMXK liters of eco friendly coolant circulates (Dowcal XNUMX – XNUMX% Propylenglycol) through the system. The pumps for circulation of coolant are computer controlled, ensuring automated reduced power usage when the demand for cooling is reduced whilst having sufficient circulation in the system so that the energy effect is maximized.
Renewable, because then «we follow in our own footsteps»
Renewable energy from Fjordkraft AS is delivered with a guarantee of origin and is 100% pure hydropower produced at Norwegian hydropower plants. In Norway, Statnett SF has been granted authority to issue guarantees of origin to producers of renewable energy, and Fjordkraft AS guarantees that a number of guarantees of origin corresponding to customers' consumption will be canceled.
We are proud of our environmental certificate, issued by Fjordkraft AS.
